NBA Playoffs 24-AUG

Happy Monday to all! We're kickin' the week off with today's NBA Playoff games. Our #BucketLine picks and game analysis for the Buck / Magic and Pacers / Heat are below... plus a little Pizza Play for you's that are extra hungry! Lets have ourselves a Monday and get #InTheMoney!!



*Milwaukee Bucks / Orlando Magic Under 225.5 Points

*Indiana Pacers +6.5




Milwaukee Bucks / Orlando Magic Under 225.5 Points

10:30 AM Pacific


The Milwaukee Bucks look to take a commanding 3-1 lead in their series against the Orlando Magic today in game four. The Bucks have looked dominate the last two games behind that league-leading defense they came into the restart with. *In the past two games the Magic have averaged 99.5 points per 100 possessions and an expected field goal percentage of 47.1%. The Magic simply do not make shots at a high enough rate, the Bucks are the best defensive team in the league, the Bucks **are below 50% to the over with one day off and coming off a win, and the Magic **are also below 50% to the over after a loss. We will be playing the game total under 225.5 points.



 

Indiana Pacers +6.5

3:30 PM Pacific


History is not on the side of the Pacers to win this series as no NBA team has ever overcome a 3-0 deficit and only three times have a team forced a game 7 when being down 3-0. There is hope for the Pacers and your wallet though! **Before this series began the Pacers were 6-2 against the spread and they looked to be firing on all cylinders. The Pacers are a true cover team as they boast a **54.8% ATS in all games this year. Digging even deeper, **with one day off, equal rest and as an underdog, the pacers are above 56% ATS. When we look at the Heat, **they came into this series with a 3-5 record ATS in the bubble. **With one day off, equal rest, and after a win, the Heat are below 47% ATS (after a win they are below 40% ATS). The NBA expanded their first-round playoffs series in 2003 from five games to seven. In that time only 28% of the first-round series resulted in a sweep with an average of 2 sweeps per first round. We saw two sweeps occur yesterday which gives the Pacers hope they will force a game four. This game opened at Pacers +7.5, so grab it if you can find it. We are looking to the Pacers to cover this spread of +6.5 today.
